Colts Vs. Buccaneers: Colts Take The Lead, 17-10, On Another Long TD To Garcon

Pierre Garcon victimized the Tampa Bay Buccaneers secondary for the second time tonight, taking a short pass from Curtis Painter to the house for a 59 yard touchdown. Painter faked a hand-off to Delone Carter, and then quickly threw to Garcon for a wide receiver screen. The Colts offensive line got down field and wiped out the second level of the Bucs defense.

Garcon would weave the remaining 50 yards for the score, racing past Aqib Talib and Ronde Barber. In addition to the offensive line downfield, Reggie Wayne came flying across the field for the final block to spring Garcon.

It was a one play, 59 yard drive that put the Colts back in the lead, after a field goal from Connor Barth tied it for the Bucs on their opening drive of the half.

Garcon has only two catches on the night, but he has certainly made them count, taking both for touchdowns and 146 yards receiving on the night.
